Salman Khan who has been associated with Bigg Boss for three consecutive seasons has garnered millions of fans thanks to his dynamic presence on the small screen. It must have been disheartening for Salman fans to hear rumours about him not being available for the upcoming 7th season of Bigg Boss because of his packed schedule with his new movie ‘Mental’.
There were strong rumours and reports about Salman Khan getting replaced by Shahrukh Khan in the next season of Bigg Boss. But fortunately for all the Sallu fans, these reports have been rubbished by a source close to Salman Khan.
According to a source,”Big Boss and Salman have become synonymous. As far as we’re concerned, the two brands are inseparable. We’ve to admit, the show has benefited immensely from Salman’s presence. At the same time Salman too has discovered an added connectivity with the home-viewing audience. His attitude really works for the show, and there is no chance of us letting it go.”
Apparently, television channel Colors is desperate to have Salman in their next season too and are willing to bag him for the host of the show at any cost.
Sources say,” Colors is willing to wait, even re-shuffle its schedule if the need arises for Salman to accommodate the next season of Bigg Boss. Apparently the star’s business managers have asked for a substantial hike in his fee which the show’s producers Endemol are more than willing to shell out.”
A source close to Salman says, “Like the channel told you any star would be happy to have his name associated with the Bigg Boss brand. And if such rumours(of SRK replacing Salman) make anyone happy, then so be it. Let them have fun.”
Shahrukh may have the world at his feet but when it comes to Bigg Boss, the first name that comes to mind is Salman’s. Salman is an integral part of the show and without him, the show wouldn’t really look the same, especially after seeing him in three consecutive seasons.
Well, all you saddened Sallu fans can now breathe a sigh of relief as your favourite actor still remains a priority of the successful TV reality show.
